“They Did Reject All the Words of the Prophets”

Brant Gardner

The people reject their last chance for survival. Coriantor’s son, Ether, will record the downfall of his nation.

Chronology: The average reign-length I have been using would have Ether witnessing the final Jaredite throes from 230 B.C. to the Jaredites’ final battle in 200 B.C. I speculate that he would have been perhaps twenty years old prior to the time of his “reign.” Thus, from about the age of twenty to fifty, he was part of the terminating events of his people.

Text: This is the end of the 1830 edition’s fourth chapter of Ether.
